TPTA: The Great Collapse
After his discoveries in Philadelphia, Lucius Popillius Priscus, finds himself obsessed with learning the identity of the Specter. Once thought to be a religious terrorist organization in opposition to the United Empire of America, this new journal may allow Priscus to rewrite history and secure his legacy. Priscus must now turn to Viminal's brightest mind, the eccentric and charismastic Chaologist, Tiberius Hortensius Nasica and the abilities of Praeteritum. But while Praeteritum may shed light on the answers Priscus seeks, Priscus bringing the dead back to life for those answers will find him sacrificing the good of the future for the knowledge of the past.
The Great Collapse begins as the slaughter of Bolenberg Forest finds the Circle of Eight with more enemies then they destroyed. The central governments outside the United Empire of America resist from without while the 1%, a group of veterans in outward rebellion against the Eight and their Empire, fight from within. A new mysterious writer enters the stage with their eyes set on personally delivering the members of the Circle into the afterlife. Finally the enigmatic and unstoppable Bomber develops and delivers his ultimately diabolical plot against the Empire in a two volume story that encompasses the final hours of the Great Collapse.
